“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Dropping our daughter off at Marshall University and stopping at Fat Pattys is a must. Fun, casual bar atmosphere with lots of Marshall school spirit! Great burgers and bar food at a really good price.

“25 $ for two burgers two diet mt dews and one order of cheese fries.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Way over rated. This is another one of those places where people gather to drink booze and watch sports. ( Sports bar ) People I have talked to personally that frequent the place are drinkers so what ever they eat will be great. Ive always said you could take a roll of cheap bologna, stick a knife in it, set out a loaf of bread, some condiments, serve ice cold beer, have good looking servers ( male and female ) and make a fortune.

“Overrated hamburger place. Don't waste your time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have ate here several times and I must say that the food is ok but the service is very poor. Tried all the locations to see if it was just a bad visit but every time I go it takes forever to get waited on and get my food. Even made the mistake of doing carry out one night and they never answer the phone. I would never take a family here as the place is noisy and more of a "hangout" atmosphere rather than a restaurant.

“Consistent College Sports Bar & Grill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Always crowded and on campus, this place is your classic college sports eatery. TV's, music and clippings from the owners' personal collection of memoribilla decorate the walls and the Marshall green carpet is well trodden. There is a large list of burgers, some basic salads, wedge cut fries and crispy onion rings. This is a local chain, but the quality is much better than national fast food joints. Try the cajun burger, order the onion rings and put some Tabasco in your ketchup. Standard, American beers and soft drinks flow freely. Wear your team jersey and go here before a game! Expect a wait.

“Unique burgers, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have to admit that I enjoy hamburgers, and Fat Patty's does a great job of making them in new and unusual ways. I had the Black and Blue burger and onion rings, a great combination! The burger is made with some extra spices, and has a bleu cheese topping. It adds a great unique flavor. The onion rings were also very good. Others with me had a reuben sandwich, and they commented on how much they enjoyed that as well. The atmosphere is informal and friendly, and our waiter was very efficient and very attentive. I would highly recommend a trip to Fat Patty's, either in Huntington, or at the Ashland, KY or Teays Valley, WV location -- all three have been great.
